Did some Brewery hopping that evening and stopped to grab some food. Wasn't too busy. The food was quite tasty and served piping hot. Washed it all down with an ice cold Red Stripe.

The food here was good but it wasn't great. We tried the stew chicken and jerk chicken. My stew chicken was greasy. The Jerk chicken was better. Could have been better

This restaurant is owned by Andrew Ashmeade who hails from Jamaica, and the food, especially jerk chicken, is AMAZING!

The servers are fun, the food is great, and the atmosphere is perfect. We went on Thursday karaoke night and it was a riot. So much fun.

My gf and I rarely have time to spend with each other during the week. However, today I made an exception and so happy we were able to enjoy the lunch buffet at Jerk Hut - Fowler. Upon arrival, the line was almost out the door but the wait was not too long. The host was working by himself at... More

It was a Friday night and the restaurant had a live band that played good music! The food was good but a bit understaffed. The manager served us and the drinks were great! Me and my friends had a good time listening to smooth Caribbean themed music. Then later in the evening it was like a club! Very entertaining! Will... More

We stopped in for lunch while attending Margarita Fest. Loved the food and met the owner who really cared about what he was serving. Reasonably priced too.

This was our 1st visit to the Jerk Hut and furthermore our 1st time eating Jamaican food. We thoroughly enjoyed the food. We shared the lunch portion of the Jerk chicken and pork. It came out hot and fresh. On the other hand, as good the food was the service was equally as bad. We were ignored at first by... More

We stopped in during our visit to Tampa and the gracious young man at the counter explained how the meal selection process worked, and they let us sample a few items to make sure our kids knew what "spicy" meant. It was FABULOUS!!! We ordered Goat curry, Jerk Chicken, jerk pork, and a sweet BBQ chicken. I will return here... More
